DC Entertainment announced today that they have signed an exclusive contract with Mitch Gerads, guaranteeing his involvement in future projects at DC Comics and its Vertigo imprint. Gerads will continue his collaboration with Tom King and remain as series artist on the acclaimed Vertigo series, The Sheriff of Babylon.
“From the moment I began working with them, the Vertigo and DC teams have treated me like family, so teaming up with them was an easy and obvious decision for me,” explains Gerads. “I’m really looking forward to my future with the company,” and am incredibly proud of THE SHERIFF OF BABYLON; Tom and I are excited to work on a book that feels so important and Vertigo has given us a chance to really say something, and say it all. I’m right where I should be.”
”As our talent roster continues to expand, it’s exciting to see that we’re stocking it with some of the best writers and artists in the industry today, and Mitch Gerads is no exception,” said DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Jim Lee. “His style is the perfect complement to Tom King’s gritty storytelling, and I can’t wait to see how Mitch tackles other Vertigo and DC projects in the future.”
